Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com. And this is my overview of the RTR grill with LED accent, vent lights, that's available for all 2015 and newer s550 Mustangs. This overview is going to cover a few topics with the RTR grill like the different options with this grill as well as the install for this. One is a simple, one it's, a one out of three wrenches, but we'll talk more about that later on the RTR grill with LED accent event, lighting is going to be something that a s550 owner. Should check out if they're looking to do something a little different styling wise, or if they're just looking for some of that RTR statement styling I mentioned some options earlier, and I wanted to explain that before I got into any details with the grill. There are a few different ways that you can purchase this grill.
You can purchase just the upper with the lights, just the lower or a combo of the upper with the lights and the lower. So you match all the way around and complete the package. But there's another option too, which may be very good news to some of you. You also have the option of purchasing just the lights if you want to. So if you've already purchased the RTR grill without the LED lighting, you can just pick up the lighting and complete the look. So this is the same upper grille with accent, LED, lighting, that's included as original equipment on the RTR Mustangs.
You can see it's the same three window design, and it's going to eliminate the stock pony, that's normally in the. Grille, both the upper and lower grilles are complete replacements of the factory, grille, not overlays and the rope actually going to help increase some airflow to the ride. If you compare them to the stock rebels, getting into the LED accent, lighting, some more obviously there's going to be letting around the vent openings. And the accent lights are going to plug into the factory headlight, harness. You won't have to cut or splice, but I'll get more into the installation later plug in the accent, lighting.
Into the factory, harness means that they'll be automatically activated with the daytime running lights. So if the car is on the accent lights will do this girl is going to work with the stock front fascia. So to work for the v6, the Boost and the GT as long as you have the stock front-end, one thing that I did want to note, though is that the lower grille just the lower is not going to work on cars that have the adaptive cruise control. This is because the control is mounted in the lower grille and. The RTR grille would interfere with it when it comes to price.
It really all depends on what you end up looking for the combo kit of the upper with the lights. And the lower grille together is going to cause pretty close to the $750 mark. If you wanna just the upper grille that's about $550 by itself and about $200 for just the lower grille, the lights by themselves are going to cost close to the $300 mark, so it's safe to say that you definitely save a few bucks by purchasing the kit. And then if you.
Wanted to purchase just the light you're going to be paying a pretty penny for them. The installation here is an easy. Once it's, a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. And the time for the installation will change a little, depending on if you're installing both the upper and the lower grille or just one or the other. But assuming that you're installing both I'm going to say that this will take about two hours to complete.
You will need to drill it a bit to drill up, three mounting holes for the. Lights in the grille that's, really easy and simple. So nothing you have to worry about if you want, you can start by getting the arc air, grill, ready to install. So you drill three mounting locations for the accent lights. But our TR has the locations pre marked for you already. The KM lights are held in by the supplied hardware, and then you'll need to mount the control box to the backside of the grille this double-sided tape on the back.
So it just sticks into place. You will need to remove the front. Fascia to complete the installation. So you just want to jack in some stands or a lift to elevate the car.
Some removing the front fascia isn't hard. There are a lot of clips and some screws that hold it into place. The fascia will then just pop off.
And you pull the sides near the headlight and getting the top factory, grille out isn't as hard as you might think it is there's, a soft gasket that comes out with a screwdriver. And then you can remove the plastic clips that are all on the edge. The new grill. Will pop into place using the supplied hardware from RTR. And then the center bumper soft gasket goes right back in after the new grill to integrate the lights you'll just need to unplug, the headlight harness from the back of the headlight plug, the supplied harness into the headlight and then piggyback the factory harness onto that. You might need to talk to harness off into the frame rail to keep it all up and safe and that's all it's going to take wrapping things up here at the RTR grill. This is.
The OE grill for the RTR Mustang, and it comes complete with the LED accent, lighting around the vents. The lighting is completely plug and play. And the accent lights will illuminate when the car is on, and the running lights are active. This is very easy to install. And you can check it out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.
